The setup of this brewpub is certainly different than most. Big Horse has great sitting areas inside or out with great views of Hood River and the Columbia. It was a fun place to hang out with pool tables and good tunes. The beer selection was decent with 6 or 7 of their own then one guest tap. The beers were a little pricey outside of happy hour but I find that is the standard for the area. Definitely a nice place to hit up after playing in the wind and water of the Columbia or taking a drive up Mt. Hood.

Overall a good experience. Located on the upper side of Hood River overlooking the town and river. Lots of nice decor and comfortable seating. The patrons were relaxed and enjoyable. The food was tasty and definately the chef takes his or her work seriously. Excellent beer and will be rated seperately.

Nice pub up on the hill with a view of the river. The food was very good, I had a small pizza that was excellent. They had 6 beers on tap or so, all good to very good quality, only one beer was a bit disapointing. Highly recommended place.

Nice building with a fantastic view of the Columbia river. Watch the barges, windsurfers and kiters do their things. Beer is all theirs with a decent range of styles. Runs on the expensive side for food and drink. Service has always been fine, beers are passable.

I waited along time to visit this place and once I did finally go i wondered why I waited so long. They got good beer, food and the view is something else. Make 3 stops in Hoods river and this needs to be one. Cheers you will have fun just be sire to be in shape the stair case is long.

Had lunch here on the way to the RBSG04. Good food. I kept it simple with a salad with a vinaigrette for dressing. Beers were pretty good. The building is awesome though. We sat right next to a great big ass plate glass window and got to view the entirity of Hood River while eating/sampling.

Take the 63 exit, go north until the end of the road and thereís this big 3 story vertical brewpub. Good luck finding parking on a busy friday but a quarter buys you an hour on the meters. Nice fountain at the bottom and a decent hike up a few flight of stairs to get to the top restaurant/pub. Inside is fairly standard but with a wicked view of the columbia. We sat right next to the window and it kept my attention the whole time. Thereís a small stage I believe right in the ceiling space for bands, but Iím not sure. Their food was good, I had the &quo;famous&quo; clam chowder which turned out to be quite tasty. All the other items were way too expensive ($9 burgers). The 9 sampler tray was $8 and had a wide variety of beers, none were too impressive but most were well built. The service was so-so and overall it was a nice place for lunch but nothing really outside of that.

Quiet house turned brewpub is easy to find from the interstate. Parking is crowded, even during a slow part of the day. We did get a great table by the window with an amazing view of town. Food was good, but pricey. Service was better than average. Only had one beer, but it was quite good. They do offer a sampler at a reasonable price.

Had an enjoyable experience here. Iíve been here several times and the service is always hit or miss. They always have on a few standards and some rock solid seasonals, which is the draw for me. Everyday beers are basic, but brewed true to style. First of all you have to really want to try the beers here, because you will get your exercise doing it, specfically up 3 1/2 flights of stairs. The views of downtown and the river are spectacular especially in the fading light heading into night when the town lights up. Itís worth it!

Took my wife and son (2 yrs) in for Sunday lunch. They were ready for a little person with a high chair and some crackers right off the bat. We had the salmon burger, clam chowder and the childís fish and chips. The food was good but the salmon burger was pricey at $12 for lunch. They offered about nine of their own beers with a descent variety within them. My wife sampled at least four of their beers (4 oz each) and all were good. I had 12 oz of Slyís Demise and MacStallion Scotch Ale. Both were good too. The view from their dining area of the Columbia River and downtown Hood River is tough to beat. Hood River offers more than a few good breweries and all are worth a stop.
